“I remember playing this one, I had to have it. I found the one. It has that driving kind of tone, great for the band (Danu). It has that real punchy mid-range, strong powerful mid-range. Also, I like the balance, compared to other dreadnoughts and your guitars…

“What I love most about Bourgeois guitars is how fat the high notes are. They have the same deep rich substance that the mid range notes have. I also love how even they are tonally and volume-wise from the bottom to the top. Perfect for the studio as well as live.”

“The first guitar he handed me was a Bourgeois Country Boy Deluxe, figured mahogany, Adirondack Spruce, beautiful to behold. I had heard good things about Dana’s guitars, but had never played one myself. I sat on the bumper of (my friend) Rick’s car and…

“It’s the most comfortable acoustic I have…This is all I need for just about anything I do. It records great. I’ve used it in the studio, used it on (arena) tours like this, I’ve done radio station visits, writing appointments. It just always sounds good. And, it stays in tune, you…
